Violent crime in Chicago is out of control and Mayor Lori Lightfoot is not handling the problem.
She is deflecting by focusing on silly things that will not improve the lives of people who live in the city.
Tucker Carlson called Lightfoot out in a recent monologue that is worth your time.
FOX News provides a partial transcript:
Tucker Carlson: The mayor of Chicago is demented, she needs help
We want to start with an insurrection — an insurrection against the rule of law, against civilization itself — that’s been going on for more than a year in the city of Chicago. Since the death of George Floyd last May, Chicago’s mayor, Lori Lightfoot, has embraced every part of the equity and inclusion agenda.
Lightfoot banned the police from chasing criminals, even in the case of some very serious offensives. And her D.A. refuses to prosecute many crimes. The results? Nearly 200 more people have been murdered this year than last. Many more dead people, hundreds. Yesterday, there was yet another mass killing in Chicago…
The third mass shooting in just over a week, each one of them was a far greater human tragedy than anything that happened at the Capitol on January 6. But as the bodies in Chicago accumulate, the people who run the city barely notice.
In fact, they make it possible. Four days before Christmas, a 28-year-old named Marvin Flanagan murdered a man during a home invasion. Flanagan should have been in jail at the time. He was a five-time felon with convictions for armed robbery. But officials let him out, and he promptly committed murder.
This now common in the city of Chicago. Marvin Flanagan is just one of the dozens of criminals who’ve been let out of jail in Chicago recently, only to go on to shoot or murder someone else. Lori Lightfoot did this.
Watch the whole thing below:
Lightfoot is an awful mayor.
Why do the people of Chicago put up with such terrible leadership?
